Faculty Positions in Intelligent Systems Engineering

The School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC) at Indiana University (IU) Bloomington invites applications for multiple open rank tenure/tenure track faculty positions to begin in Fall 2017 in Intelligent Systems Engineering.  Cluster hires are encouraged as are interdisciplinary applications spanning the interests of SoIC and collaborating with IU units. Duties include teaching, research, and service.

Applicants should have an established record (for senior level) or demonstrable potential for excellence (for junior level) in research and teaching, and a PhD in a relevant field or (for junior level) expected before 8/2017.

The department of Intelligent Systems Engineering is an innovative new program, currently with 12 faculty, that focuses on the engineering of systems of smaller-scale, often mobile devices that draw upon modern information technology techniques including intelligent systems, big data and user interface design.   Its foundation also includes computer engineering, cyber-physical systems, robotics, sensor and detector technologies, signal processing, and information and control theory. We intend to add about 20 new faculty over the next 4 years for these areas as well as bioengineering, synthetic biology, molecular and nanoscale engineering, environmental engineering and neuro-engineering with an interdisciplinary IT component. The program offers a BS and a PhD, which started in fall 2016, while a future MS will be developed. Artificial Intelligence, Modelling and Simulation and the Internet of Things are integrated into core curriculum. The program will draw upon IU Bloomington’s considerable education and research strengths in biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental science, informatics, physics, network science, psychological and brain sciences, business and law. New faculty will have considerable opportunity and responsibility to shape the development of curricula and research. There will be a strong emphasis on world-class research, built around a few strong focused laboratories and proactively involving undergraduates.  More information can be found at https://www.engineering.indiana.edu/
